Poet, translator and essayist Erín Moure is a Canadian who writes across the borders of languages and cultures. She has published 17 books of poetry in English and Galician/English, and 13 volumes of poetry translated from French, Spanish, Galician and Portuguese into English, by poets such as Nicole Brossard, Andrés Ajens, Louise Dupré, Rosalía de Castro, Chus Pato and Fernando Pessoa. Her translations of White Piano by Nicole Brossard (with Robert Majzels) and Galician Songs by Rosalía de Castro appeared in 2013. Moure’s work has received the Governor General's Award, Pat Lowther Memorial Award, A.M. Klein Prize, and has been three-times a finalist for the Griffin Prize. Her latest work is Insecession, an autobiography and poetics that echoes Chus Pato’s Secession; both books appeared as one book from BookThug in 2014. She is also translating Chus Pato’s Carne de Leviatán into English as Flesh of Leviathan, to appear in 2016 from Omnidawn, and her bilingual French/English play-poem-cabaret Kapusta, a sequel to The Unmemntioable, will appear from Anansi in April 2015. Moure lives in Montreal, and is currently in Vancouver working on a new book of poems called The Elements.

Sierra Nelson’s books include lyrical choose-your-own adventure I Take Back the Sponge Cake (Rose Metal Press) made with visual artist Loren Erdrich, Who Are You? (Vis-a-Vis Society, with 7-inch record), and chapbook In Case of Loss (Toadlily Press). Nelson is a MacDowell Colony Fellow and recipient of Poetry Northwest’s Carolyn Kizer Prize and Seattle Office of Arts & Culture’s CityArtist Grant. She is a co-founder of collaborative performance groups The Typing Explosion and the Vis-à-Vis Society, and in addition to traditional publication, her individual and collaborative poems have appeared in venues such as Seattle Metro buses, the Seattle Aquarium, with Nordic runes on lava stones debuting in Reykjavik, Iceland, and checked out with keys from the lobby of Seattle’s now demolished Bridge Motel.
